Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat and more gather at the TCL Chinese Theater in L.A. to celebrate the upcoming release of the show's new season.
As the Bluths are going to return on screen after seven years, the stars of "Arrested Development" reunited for the show's season 4 premiere party in Los Angeles. The returning cast, including Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter and Mae Whitman, were all on hand for the special screening held at the TCL Chinese Theater on Monday, April 29.
Looking sleek in a grey suit and pants matched with blue shirt, Bateman was all smiles as he hit the orange carpet with wife Amanda Anka. Also bringing her partner Ellen DeGeneres to the party, de Rossi said she watched old episodes of "Arrested Development" to prepare for the new shoot. "She did, we looked at them a little bit to remember her character. It just kind of came back to her," DeGeneres assured the reporters.
Making the celebration was more star-studded was the arrival of celebrity guests such as Amber Tamblyn, Laura Prepon, Amanda Peet, Jason Biggs, Harry Shum Jr. and Kevin Nealon. Judy Greer, who recurred on the show in between 2003 and 2005, was also among the attendees of the premiere party.
All 15 new episodes of "Arrested Development" season 4 will be available on Netflix on Sunday, May 26 starting at 12:01 A.M. PDT. John Krasinski was recently announced to appear on the show, joining previously announced guest stars Ben Stiller, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Conan O'Brien, Isla Fisher, John Slattery, Liza Minnelli and Ron Howard.
